I'm feeling like a crappy mom right now. I don't know what to do. Hoping to get some thoughts from you mamas.
DD is SO CLINGY. I know, I need to make sure her "attachment tank" is full. But every time I try to play with her everything just goes to hell. She starts acting naughty, jumping on me, being bossy. I normally cut her off when she treats me that way: "Ok, mom's done playing now if you're going to treat me like that." Which leads to her having an enormous meltdown and me being annoyed. Tonight I tried playing three or four different games with her, and every single time it led to crappy behavior and a meltdown.
Ugh, ugh, ugh! DH is awesome and has told me to take a break tonight even though he's been with her all weekend because I've been working. He took her to Chuckie Cheese, her grandma came for a visit, etc. He says she acts very differently to him than she does towards me right now. He's started to rough-house with her more because she's just so physical right now. But I won't play with her like that for obvious reasons. Maybe she's testing me?
